Actress and yogi Laura Prepon (Alex on Orange is the New Black) and integrative nutritionist Elizabeth Troy want to make cooking for good health easy and accessible. Their new book, The Stash Plan, includes meal plans for prepping dishes ahead of time to mix and match throughout the week.

All the recipes are made using food that helps aid liver and gallbladder function, to keep you feeling great.

Give one or all three of these recipes a try to eat well all week long.

Turmeric Turkey

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground white-meat turkey
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon Real Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preparation

1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and turkey. Break the turkey into chunks with a thick metal spatula.

2. Add ¼ cup broth, cilantro, salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin, and cayenne. Continue to break up the turkey into small pieces as you stir all ingredients together.

3. Cook for 4 minutes. Add remaining ¼ cup beef broth, and cook for another 4 minutes.

4. Allow to cool, then transfer to a glass container.

Herb-Roasted Sweet Potato Home Fries

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1¼ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Real Salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1¼ tablespoons olive oil

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse and dry sweet potatoes. Cut ends off, then cut into slices an inch thick. Cut these slices into 1- to 2-inch cubes.

2. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, then add parsley and salt. Toss with your hands to coat well.

3. Place in the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Stir with a spatula, flipping the sweet potatoes over, then roast for an additional 20 minutes, or until a knife can easily pierce them.

4. Allow to cool, then transfer to a glass container.

Garlic-Roasted Beets

Ingredients

  • 7 large beets (red and yellow)
  • 1¼ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Real Salt

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse beets with water and dry. Cut off both ends.

2. Pare the beets. (They don’t have to be pretty; it’s nice to see a little skin left.) Cut beets into large chunks and place on a baking sheet.

3. Drizzle the olive oil over the beets, then add garlic and salt. Toss with your hands to coat well.

4. Place in the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Stir with a spatula, flipping the beets over, then roast for an additional 10 minutes, or until a knife can easily pierce them.

5. Allow to cool, then transfer to a glass container.
